Miss Grace is just flying through her first year! I cannot believe that she will be 1 in March. That is just crazy to me! She is now crawling like a pro which Blase is not to thrilled about. She loves when Mommy forgets to close the gate and she heads right to Kosmo's food to play! She just started trying to pull up on things which is crazy to me. She gets up on her knees and then usually falls over. She started saying Mama this month although her favorite word is Dada although she prefers me to him. She also just started clapping and raising her hands when you say so big. She is doing better eating food but she is super picky about textures! Ugh! So different from when Blase was a baby he would eat EVERYTHING and not think twice. We went to the Dr. on Thursday December 15, 2011
She is now weighing 17 pounds and 12 ounces and is measuring in at a whopping 29 and a half inches! She is now wearing 9 month shirts and dresses but her pants need to be 12 months so they are long enough! We are looking forward to her first Christmas on Sunday!

I see you!
Mommy I'm gonna get that camera!
Oh nice Mommy left the gate open!
This month is just flying by I cannot believe that Christmas is almost here!! We are in full Christmas swing here in the Ullrich house! Last week ( I think) my Mom and I loaded up the car and headed down to Downtown Disney to see Santa! We have seen the same Santa since Blase was born. This year was another wonderful year for Blase and Santa. Those two are like old friends. Now granted it was not always like this! I guess I do not really blame kids! Think about it we tell them all the time not to talk to strangers and then around Christmas time we put them on some old guys lap to tell him what they want?! But this year again (last year also) he went running up to Santa and was telling him all kinds of things! Luckily this year I knew what he was going to ask for no Clifford situation again like last year! So, away he went to Santa and was telling him how he really wants the pelican movie (rio) and then Santa went and asked what his sister wanted?! Really Santa?!? I thought we were on the same page!! I have no idea what is he going to tell Santa what Grace wanted and I did not have said present in my closet!!! Luckily he responded with something that is simple to find. He told him that his sister wanted a silly doll. So Mommy pulled out her trusty Iphone and used that wonderful amazon app to order a doll for Miss Grace! Here are some picture from the past Santa visits and this year! Enjoy!

Merry Christmas!! Sorry about the amount of pictures in this blog and how long it is going to be!! We have some very fun traditions in the Ullrich house this time of year! I LOVE Christmas! I love to decorate! I love to get a tree! I just love the whole thing!
Now, this first tradition is a new one! I am addicted to pinterest! If you don't have an invite to it just let me know! I thought I could waste time on facebook. Well that is nothing compared to pinterest! There are so many great ideas on there. This is one that I found and just fell in love with. I just wish I found this back in 2008 when Blase was first born.
It is a family Christmas tree skirt. I decided that I would put Jason and my hands in the middle and put when our family was established. So it says Ullrich est. 2006
Then I added the kids hand prints and put the year 2011. You do this each year and you can watch the kids grow! How awesome is that?! (I got the skirt from Target for 5 bucks! I decided to do pink and blue paint cause that is what i had on hand!)
Another tradition we have in this house is one that my husbands mother started with her kids. Every year she would get them an ornament that represented them at the time. Then when they got married she gave them the box so they would have stuff to put on their tree! I loved it so I started it with Blase and now I am starting it with Grace.
This was for Blase's First Christmas 2008
This one he might end up getting because the one I bought in 2009 was a series! So I cannot not get them! LOL
2010 all he LOVED was Toy Story
Now I decided that this year he is old enough to pick his own so we will be going to the store soon to get his for 2011
Here is Miss Grace's First Christmas 2011
